Recorded on May 20, 1929 in Chicago. Justice was a contemporary of Frank Hutchison, where he evidently worked in the mines with Hutchison and played music with him. This tune was recorded by Luke Jordan in 1927 as "Cocaine Blues" (not to be confused with "Cocaine Habit Blues" recorded by the Memphis Jug Band). This tune is one of most surreal in old-time country. While there are clear references to the partaking of the white stuff, there is also seemingly unrelated commentary about a man who lives off his girlfriend's earnings (and what she can steal from her employer) and the furniture man repossessing the furniture. This tune is a hoot!
